    my friend was working on an excel file, which size is about 6.2 MB. she's using openoffice software, but saved it in .xls extension. one day, when she was saving the file, the electric is off. the file was in the middle of the saving process when the computer's off. and after she opened it again, the file was corrupted. it cannot be opened with openoffice, saying the file was invalid or something. then she asked for my help.
    i have tried to open it with ms office 2007 and choose open and repair. it opened, has numbers, but didn't show exactly as the original form.
    so when i looking for excel repairing software in google, i found several software like excel fix, officerecovery, recovery for excel, kernel recovery, stellar phoenix, advanced excel repairer, etc...and have tried it all.
    well, (some of) it works, it brings back 26 sheet, but only one sheet has data in it, and there's 'lost label' in some cells. and the size of the restored file is only 280 KB...

    it's gonna be a herculean job to type everything back, so if you can try to fix this file please reply this message, thanks a lot!
